The Experience

Eco credentials here are sound: the inn is powered by natural energy from the estate wind turbine which works alongside a biomass boiler fed by their own woodland, and water comes from a bore hole on the estate. Menus feature estate-grown produce from game to figs and apples from the orchard. There’s no lack of comfort though: bedrooms (above the pub or in the Dog House) are blessed with king size beds, woollen throws and muted colours; bathrooms sport Noble Isle soaps and lotions. Dig into the treats if the weather is bad.

The Dog House has a lovely covered outdoor area with comfy seating around a fire pit and also a lounge/private dining space with leather sofas, books, magazines, sound system, log fire and honesty bar. Over at the inn the informal bar is cosy and relaxed, the dining room has a log fire and you’ll eat and drink well.

Roam the Hampshire Highlands, puff up to Inkpen Beacon for stunning views.

Lost down lanes in tiny Faccombe deep in the Hampshire Highlands, this estate-owned gem is the place for country (and dog) lovers to escape to for glorious walks, great views, cosy, contemporary rooms in the Dog House, and hearty seasonal cooking using game shot on the estate and produce from the kitchen garden.

The neighbourhood

Faccombe is hidden down narrow lanes between Newbury and Andover. The estate covers over 4,200 acres, much of which you're free to roam and there are many footpaths. Pretty Stockbridge is half an hour for the wonderful Leckford Farm Shop and café and Thyme & Tides, a little gem of a deli, fishmonger and café. Cultural visits include Highclere Castle, Mottisfont Abbey and Sandham Memorial Chapel.

Local points of interest from Jack Greenall

  • St Peter’s is a pretty Norman church in the heart of St Mary Bourne village. The Grade I-listed building retains many original features and has many interesting artefacts, including a Norman chancel arch, a large Tournai black marble font from the late 12th century.
  • At Marsh Benham, the Kennet and Avon canal passes through Hamstead Lock, a pretty section of the canal with a bench overlooking the water. It makes a nice picnic or rest spot.
  • Penwood Forest is a beautiful woodland known for its ancient beech trees and autumnal colours. The woods feature a network of walking trails that welcome walkers, runner, and cyclists.
  • One of the best sections of the Wayfarers Walk with a decent singletrack. Some sections are heavily rutted, too much so for my limited skills. Added interest with Bluebells carpeting the woods during May.
  • Ladle Hill is a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Scheduled Monument with sublime views. Atop the hill is an Iron Age hill fort that has never been excavated. Ladle Hill is a calcareous grassland chalk downland habitat, which is now scarce in Britain.
  • Watership Down is a hill in the Hampshire Downs. It is best known as the setting for Richard Adams' 1972 novel about rabbits, ‘Watership Down’. The hill, which has a partially-completed Iron Age hill fort on its summit, affords far-reaching views.
